Mileage wasn't really an issue the only time it would be used is to pull the Jeep.
I'll say this, I went from towing with my 96 dodge (V10, ext cab long bed 4x4 3/4 ton) to towing with my 2009 F150 (5.4 6 speed crew cab 5.5' bed 4x4).... the F150 is better in every way. It doesn't have quite as much low end torque, but the 6 speed has a 4.2:1 first gear compared to the 2.5:1 in the dodge, and the ford makes more horsepower and weighs 2000lbs less.
